Hi
I uploaded some books. The thumbnails of my books in my library are some random pages from the books. Where I can change it that the covers of the book (the first page) will be also the thumbnail or cover in my library?

The algorithm looks for title page not cover. You can manually change it once the item is created by modifying the scandata.xml file.

See "How do I change the title page in the flip book?" at https://help.archive.org/hc/en-us/articles/360016638171-Books-and-Texts-Tips-Troubleshooting-

Hi Jeff that technique worked for me to scan the first page shown in the reader view but not the thumbnail shown in searches or in the My Library page you can bring up from your user avatar dropdown menu. That page didn't change and seems to be drawn from the __ia_thumb.jpg file Is that a file that you can safely replace? I read Enricones question as referring to these thumbnails not the first page displayed on the reader view.

Thanks, Sam
